The Analytical Services Branch (ASB) strives to be the premier provider of analytical services within the EPA and the gold standard for national environmental data collection programs. ASB provides EPA customers with timely and consistent planning, implementation, analyses, data review, and data deliverables tools and services to support a diverse spectrum of screening and legally defensible environmental data collection projects across Superfund and other EPA programs. In their effort to be the premier provider of data review /evaluation tools, ASB is making EXES and EDM available to other EPA Offices, Federal and State Agencies.

The goal of the ASB is to provide an application to efficiently evaluate analytical data regardless of the underlying method and data reporting requirements. EXES is a web based automated data assessment and management tool designed to be flexible to meet any agency’s data review needs. EXES allows users to dynamically create test rules and design their desired level of assessment; review criteria and reports using easy to work with User Interfaces (UI).

EXES is a centralized data assessment tool that is scalable, flexible and configurable; improving data quality while reducing cost through the following:
- A review of 100% of the electronic data and not just a subset of data
- A faster (600%) and less expensive (85%) process than the traditional data usability/validation
- Faster results to end users that expedites the decision making process
- More consistency with increased confidence in data and findings
